WEB EXCLUSIVE: That’s what Evonik Degussa, High Performance Polymers (U.S. office in Parsippany, N.J.) is saying about its new Vestakeep 5000G PEEK, which boasts impact strength 20% higher than any other PEEK grade. This high-viscosity, unreinforced, lubricated resin, available in granules, is aimed at the oil and gas industries, which require operating temperatures from -40 to +150 C. One example is large gasket rings with diameters up to 2000 mm. Previous molded gaskets frequently broke while being pressed into the cavity of the metallic base plate. Vestakeep 5000G reportedly withstands the stresses without problems. What’s more, attempts to extrude such large rings failed because the extrudate sagged and deformed. The new grade reportedly has the melt strength to allow such extrusion.
